Every self-respecting athlete or one who wants to improve should know that it is necessary to do one of these from once a week to once a month, depending on the amount of sport that is practiced.
If you do sports regularly, it is best to carry out weekly or biweekly maintenance. This will help us avoid muscle fatigue, discomfort and be able to maintain or increase the elasticity of muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascias.
If you decide to have de-loading sports massages once a month, we recommend that you do weekly stretching sessions. By stretching, you can avoid muscle fatigue and keep improving.
